SpecDis: quantifying the comparison of calculated and experimental electronic circular dichroism spectra.
This article outlines theory and practice of the comparison of calculated and experimental electronic circular dichroism (ECD) curves to determine the absolute configuration of chiral molecules. TheExpand
Identification of Arabidopsis thaliana phloem RNAs provides a search criterion for phloem-based transcripts hidden in complex datasets of microarray experiments.
SUMMARY Phloem-mobile signals play a major role in plant nutrition, development and communication. In the latter context, phloem-mobile RNAs have been associated with signalling between plantExpand
Comparison of the toxicity thresholds of water pollutants to bacteria, algae, and protozoa in the cell multiplication inhibition test
Abstract Using analogous methods of the cell multiplication inhibition test, the toxicity threshold (TT) of 156 potential water pollutants was determined for model organisms of biologicalExpand
Molecular phylogeny of Caryophyllidae s.l. based on MatK sequences with special emphasis on carnivorous taxa.
: Despite intensive morphological, chemical and cladistic studies on Caryophyllidae, the circumscription of this subclass and the interfamilial relationships are still under discussion. UsingExpand
Antimicrobial Activities and Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry of Bacillus Isolates from the Marine Sponge Aplysina aerophoba
AbstractThe aim of this study was to isolate bacteria that are resistant to the strong antimicrobial metabolites characteristic of Aplysina aerophoba. For this purpose, bacterial isolation wasExpand
Molecular phylogeny and character evolution of carnivorous plant families in Caryophyllales--revisited.
Recent phylogenetic analyses based on single gene and combined data sets have substantially increased our knowledge of the phylogeny of Caryophyllales s.l., indicating that additional carnivorousExpand
The first sorbicillinoid alkaloids, the antileukemic sorbicillactones A and B, from a sponge-derived Penicillium chrysogenum strain
The saltwater culture of a Penicillium chrysogenum strain isolated from the Mediterranean sponge Ircinia fasciculata yielded three new sorbicillin-derived compounds (1-3), whose structures wereExpand
“Subcellular Proteomics” of Neuromelanin Granules Isolated from the Human Brain*
“Subcellular proteomics” is currently the most effective approach to characterize subcellular compartments. Based on the powerful combination of subcellular fractionation and protein identificationExpand
PnuC and the Utilization of the Nicotinamide Riboside Analog 3-Aminopyridine in Haemophilus influenzae
ABSTRACT The utilization pathway for the uptake of NAD and nicotinamide riboside was previously characterized for Haemophilus influenzae. We now report on the cellular location, topology, andExpand
Rubritalea marina gen. nov., sp. nov., a marine representative of the phylum 'Verrucomicrobia', isolated from a sponge (Porifera).
A marine bacterium, strain Pol012(T), was isolated from the Mediterranean sponge Axinella polypoides and subsequently characterized as belonging to subphylum 1 of the phylum 'Verrucomicrobia'. StrainExpand
